• susceptibility
  • This study demonstrates that the aggregation of N. gonorrhoeae can reduce the susceptibility to antibiotics, and suggests that antibiotic utilization can select for GC surface molecules that promote aggregation which in turn drive pathogen evolution. (mdpi.com)
  • species
  • Instead, this T4SS secretes ssDNA into the extracellular milieu, where it can serve to transform highly competent Neisseria species, thereby increasing the transfer of genetic information. (springer.com)
  • Culture
  • Throat culture for GC was found to have little contribution to the further recovery of N gonorrhoeae over culture of the urethra, cervix, and anus. (labcorp.com)
  • Two methods for detecting N. gonorrhoeae are culture and nonculture tests. (aafp.org)
